On Cambridge Analytica’s website, its Malaysian office is listed as in Kota Damansara, but the person staying at the address has not heard of the company. – March 19, 2018.

CAMBRIDGE Analytica, the data analytics firm banned from Facebook, has offices in four major cities in the world and one mysteriously in the Kota Damansara suburb outside Kuala Lumpur.

The mystery has deepened as the property owner, who has been living there for four years, said the office does not exist in the address listed on its website.

  • They are all as honourable as FB itself is ...

  • Sounds like the kind of hack con Najib likes - sneaky, underhanded, above the understanding of most people.

  • Someone should investigate whether the EC is using Cambridge Analytica in its current redelineation (read gerrymandering) exercise. It is absurd that constituencies have illogical, jagged, uneven and irregular shapes with uneven population distribution.

  • I won't be surprised that upon digging deeper their staff are actually entrenched at PMO or EC office.

  • If facebook removed the app in 2015 how did this company gain so much information for the 2016 US election.

    Note Azrin joined SCL Group in 2015 so where was he working and still is if not this address? Guess UMNO HQ https://sclgroup.cc/worldwide/malaysia

    App is only the 'gateway' to trap the facebook metadata after that they have had the profiles for 3 years to send fake news to all those facebook profiles!

    The job is already over, SCL (Cambridge Analytica) have been paid so now we know what the 'big data' revolution is all about! Twist the facts about the opposition so those swing voters vote for the guys who paid SCL!

    A new way of warping of democracy! If there ever was a choice
